A group of Wichita State University students has invented a way for young basketball players to improve their shooting.

The Boost Hoop is a funnel that attaches to the top of a basketball hoop. It requires players to put more arc on their shots while also improving accuracy and confidence.

The hoop was designed by the Boosted Ideas Lab and recently won the Shocker New Venture Competition. The four students on the winning team are Logan Cassity, Andrew Haden, Isaac Wilson and Jason DeGarmo.

Wichita State University is planning on cutting $1.5 million from different departments to pay for a new business school.

The plan comes after students in March rejected a plan to raise student fees by $6 per credit hour to pay for the building and other projects.

Two Wichita State University student organizations will host the Dream Run on Saturday – a two-mile run that organizers hope will generate scholarship money for undocumented students.

The event is co-hosted by the Student Organization of Social Work and the Rho Beta Chapter of Sigma Lambda Beta International Fraternity Incorporated.

The goal is to double the money in a scholarship fund for Dreamers provided by Sigma Lambda Beta and the Student Government Association.

Henrion Hall is where the dirty art happens at Wichita State University.

Sculpting. Ceramics. Spray painting. Students are likely to ding, splash and generally make a mess of the walls. With the building nearing 100 years old, the university doesn't mind.
